Newly merged telecom brand, AirtelTigo, has launched a series of delights for its combined customers for the festive season.
Starting December 6, 2017, customers of AirtelTigo will receive a new exciting delight every week, ranging from free calls within the AirtelTigo network every day and other exciting offers.
“As a much bigger family, we have made a strong commitment to excite and delight our existing customers. Our ‘season of delights’ for the festive period is a first step. Our integration efforts are progressing seamlessly and we will deliver exceptional value with the best customer experience, widest network and high speed data and exciting offers in the near future”, says the CEO of AirtelTigo, Roshi Motman.
AirtelTigo’s ‘season of delights’ is open to both customers on former Tigo and Airtel networks and they can opt in by dialling *533#.
On March 3, 2017, Millicom International Cellular S.A. (“Millicom”) and Bharti Airtel Limited (“Airtel”), announced their intention to merge their operations in Ghana. This was subsequently approved by the regulator, the National Communications Authority on October 2, 2017. As per the shareholders agreement, Millicom and Airtel have equal ownership and governance rights in the combined entity which has now been rebranded as AirtelTigo. AirtelTigo is the second largest Mobile Network Operator in Ghana with a combined customer base of approximately 10 million and 25 percent market share.
By integrating the two networks, the combined business is expected to provide Ghanaian customers with a major boost in both rural and urban network coverage – in turn translating into better voice quality, high speed data services and reinforced network stability and resilience. With the combined fibre footprint and increased data centres, enterprise customers including both, large corporations and SMEs, would have access to a diverse portfolio of world class solutions. Mobile Financial Services is also expected to be greatly enhanced with combined agent networks and platforms.
